Coffee Cadenzas with Kickstart Opera | The Makers Galleries

Saturday 13 July, 2024

Coffee Cadenzas is a community concert series by Kickstart Opera, inviting musicians from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland to share their music with the local community surrounded by artwork and of course…a cup of coffee! The aim is to provide accessibility to a variety of genres of music, support cultural hubs in the community and provide professional opportunity for emerging artists.

Join us at The Burrell Collection this June and July for the Summer programme. Starting at 10:30am, enjoy a short Collection talk followed by a live musical performance inspired by the collection (1 hr 30m including interval).

Coffees and other drinks and snacks will be available to purchase at our Benugo restaurant.
